One More Stationery Box

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
I am back with another Stationery Box.  This one I created as a gift for the young lady who works in the front office of my Physical Therapy practice.  I have reached my Medicare Cap for this year, so I will not see her again until next year.   

I have been hoarding Pink Paislee and Webster Pages papers for years.  I am so glad I saved them because they are perfect for my current fixation on Stationery Boxes as gifts.
 I try to vary the contents based on the recipient.  Taylor is a college student, so instead of 3"x5" cards and gift tags, I included additional post-it notes and a small composition book in her box.
I left the small pocket empty, but before I gave it to her I added a few small clothespins (with the days of the week on them) and a few fancy paper clips. 
 I totally forgot to pay attention to my paper design when cutting the triangles for my post-it note cover.  Fortunately, I had a scrap left that matched up kinda okay when I added the magnetic closure.
There are many iterations of what to include with your box.  Some folks do calendars, others make small notebooks.  I like the idea of post-it notes because they can be refilled. 
I am thinking of eliminating the stamp holder from my next SB.  Not many young people use snail mail these days.  I have an idea what I will add in its place.  Can't wait to try it out on the box I am currently working on.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have found some inspiration here!
